The Health Club, Old Market Hall, Alexandra Road, Clevedon

Clevedon Health club with Fire engineCrews from Clevedon and Nailsea were first on the scene of this incident where a fire is believed to have broken out in the sauna area of this health club.  A two storey building, the fire was confined to the rear of the premise, an area with smaller rooms. 

With the fire spreading into the roof voids between the ground and second floors it was case of tackling the fire before it took hold and ripped through into the main part of the building. 

Crew on roof at Clevedon health clubCrews needed to take off roof tiles and cut through the felting to access the fire from above.  Thankfully crews managed to confine the fire to the end section of the property, although during the fire a water mains burst resulting in water damage to the main gym area.  This was coupled with water from the firefighting operations and smoke.

A full fire investigation is underway to confirm the cause of this fire.
